Biography

Andy has been writing, preforming and recording music for many years now. Live shows are always very entertaining and captivate the crowd from start to finish. With recording equipment at home, Andy has been working on a new EP which he hopes to be available in the near future.

Influences are drawn from a wide variety of artists including singer/songwriters such as Elliott Smith and Rufus Wainwright but also from bands like Radiohead and R.E.M. The resulting sound is a very melodic mix of acoustic guitars, pianos with a touch of electronica.

Andy's songs have proved popular with a wide variety of audiences and this wide appeal is one of the strengths of the songs. He hopes to attract the attention of labels but is also working hard on an audio engineering diploma at present.

Life is never dull!

Lyrics

Disappearing

Written By: Andy Craig

Two weeks till you leave
I find it hard to believe
The time has passed so fast
Sky overcast

Taking time is kind
When hearts are hard to find
And all the words we say
Get in the way

Disappearing from view
Disappearing from view
Disappearing from view
You, you

Waiting till the end
My broken wings will mend
And soaring high you'll find
You've opened my eyes

Disappearing from view
You, you

Am I waiting for one word; one touch; one dream?
That lets me know you want as much as me
The kind of games that I play in my mind, so sad
It's killing me, it's killing the you I had, I had

No wasted words of love
Our time here's not enough
But one day I'm sure you'll learn
That these words are yours

Melting Ice

Written By: Andy Craig

I have just come round
Woke up to the sound
Of melting ice in my heart

I can't deny the pain
To feel the beats again
The strains that tore me apart

It wasn't meant to be this way
It wasn't meant to be this way
Don't you know that I still love you
Don't you know that I still love you

Everyone is listening here
An echo of a fallen tear
Wakes a part in you, I know
Will you hide it, will it show?

What was it that made me say
Everything I'd locked away
In secret rooms so deep inside
The darkest chambers of my mind

And it stirred inside of me
A looping, messed up memory
That to me makes sense only when
I feel the beats again

Dust

Written By: Andy Craig

I'm looking through the past that I have stored
The photographs, the battered toys I adored
Unsettled dust catches the light of the sun
And a breeze provides a stage to dance upon

I smile and I laugh when I think of you
And I'm numb to the pain every time I do
For the biggest grin that I ever knew
Belonged to you

And the dust captures it all
And the dust captures it all
Every speck a memory recalled
And the dust captures it all

That frozen moment satisfies my heart
And eases every day we spent apart

I smile and I laugh when I think of you
And I'm numb to the pain every time I do
For the biggest grin that I ever knew
Belonged to you

And the dust captures it all
And the dust captures it all
Every speck a memory recalled
And the dust captures it all
